5 Tips to Keep Maskne at Bay

There’s a new term in the world of skincare- maskne. Maskne refers to breakouts related to wearing face masks. While wearing a mask may be unavoidable at the moment,  we can keep the pimples and skin irritation at bay by following a few self-care tips as well as maintaining a regular schedule of salon facials.

Self Care Tips

  1. Wash Cloth Masks- If you are wearing cloth masks, make sure you are washing and drying them thoroughly after every use to avoid a buildup of acne-causing dirt and bacteria. Any grime caught in the fibers will be sitting right next to your skin all day, which is the perfect recipe for pimples.

  2. Rotate Masks Throughout the Day- It doesn’t take long for moisture from your breath to make you mask damp, and a warm damp environment is a breeding ground for bacteria. Keep three or four masks with you to rotate throughout the day to keep your mask dry and bacteria-free.

  3. Make Oral Hygiene a Priority- Not that you’re not already keeping your mouth clean, but oral hygiene has never been so important to the health of your skin. Small amounts of bacteria from your mouth are expelled every time you exhale. With a mask on this is all trapped right next to your skin. Keep this in mind next time you reach for a breath mint instead of a toothbrush. Keep a travel-size antiseptic mouthwash in your car or purse and swish throughout the day if you can’t brush.

  4. Choose Masks Wisely- Wear only masks that fit well and are made from soft, gentle materials. Natural fibers provide the most breathability and pose fewer risks to your skin. Silk is an excellent option, though it is delicate and requires hand washing. It may be worth it though to save your skin. The fit of your mask is important because a loose mask will rub and a tight mask will create pressure. 

  5. Keep Skin Well Hydrated- The friction and rubbing of masks against the skin can cause dryness and flakes in addition to acne. Be sure and use a gentle oil-free moisturizer daily to keep your skin hydrated.

Aside from these tips, the best thing you can do for your skin is to set up a schedule of regular salon facials to keep your pores clean and healthy and stop maskne before it starts.
